At the Dostoffice in Yuma, Arizona,

(From Saturday's Examiner)
The Yuma County Commercial Club
met last evening in regular weekly
session at the office of Mrs. F. R
Fugh, the secretary, and With Presi
dent Miller in the chair.
Members and visitors present were
as follows: Dr. T. J. Pugh, George
Michelsen. W. H. Shorey, A. H. Kent,
J.. H. Westover, O. H. Willis, A. L
Verdugo, A. B. MingJoe Molina, A
H. Tobias, Dr. J. A. Ketcherside, O.
O. Johnson and H.J. Green, of Bard,
Imperial county, California.
An article was read from the Los
Angeles Times of Sunday, September
17, in reference to the San Pascual
valley, and also a reply to it from the
Bard Inter Ocean of yesterday's date
After the articles were read, H. J
Green, of Bard, addressed the meeting
at length, stating that the article in
the Bard paper reflected the sentiment
of the Bard people in regard to the
Times article, and was correct in its
statements, except" as to the cost of
clearing and leveling land in the San
Pascual valley which was stated to
be $59.00. The San Pascual Growers'
Association had figured the average
cost at $69.50, which Mr. Green stat
ed was nearer correct.
Mr. Green, as an old newspaper
man, did not believe that the Times
article was intended to hurt any com
munity, but was written by a reporter
on information furnished by a petition
of the settlers of the San Pascual val
ley to the secretary of the interior
asking for further time in making this
Mr. Green. said that the San Pas
cual valley was prospering, but that
he sincerely trusted that the Commer,
cial Club would not try to create the
impression abroad that the settlers
were making their everlasting fortune
or the secretary of the interior would
not grant their petition which was an
entirely just one.

Up Day, which had been set for Fri
day, October 13, and designated as an
unlucky day for tin cans, Mrs. Pugh

Dr. J. A. Ketcherside addressed
the club on the subject of the road
race from Los Angeles to Phoenix via
Yuma which will pass through Yu
ma on Gila street. Others addressing
the club on this subject were A. B
Ming, on the subject of the $500 guar
anteed, which must be deposited at
Phoenix by October 1st.
Supervisor A. H. Kent thought that
the board of control should do some
work on this road. George Michelsen
agreed that this should be the case as
Yuma had paid in $35,000 this far on
the territorial highway scheme.

Isaac T. Stoddard
Not a Candidate
(From Monday's Examiner)
Isaac T. Stoddard, of Phoenix, who
has been put to the front by Republi
cans all over the territory as the fav
ored son for governor, has stated ac
cording to Phoenix papers that he will
not be a candidate.
Stoddard is at the head of the Ov
erland Telephone Company in Arizo
na. During his incumbency he has in
creased the business enormously. The
company frowned at the gubernatorial
race and yesterday increased, his sal
ary to $500 per month. This will be
doubled December 1, 1911.

For the past several days the eng
thusiasts for the Los Angeles to Phoe
nix race to come via Yuma have been
busy as a ways and means committee
in addition to the regular committee
to find out just what could be depend
ed on in the way of fixing up the road
from Yuma to the Yuma county line,
this side of Calient .
For the past three months the Ex
aminer has fought consistently for the
fixing up of this road.
It will also be remembered that the
supervisors now have Felix Mayhew
in the field going over the road with
signs, the said signs being donated
through the generosity of A. B. Ming.
Dr. J. A. Ketcherside and A. L. De-Mund.
Yesterday afternoon late after the
Examiner was on the street the report
er for this paper found A. .B. Ming,
Dr. Ketcherside and Paul Moretti in
conversation as to what could be done
toward getting the work done before
the big race, and it was brought out
in the course of the conversation that
Dr. Ketcherside was going to-Phoenix
on business last night. The Examiner
took occasion to ask him if he would
please look up George Purdy Bullard.
Gov. Sloan and the other members of
the board of control that he could
reach, and wire this paper authora
tively as to just what the people of
Yuma and the boosters here could ex

With the board of control doing the
work on the road from here to Phoe
nix, with the supervisors ready and
willing to help in any way they can,
for a limited amount, the route of the
'territorial race is assured through
Yuma, and not only that, but the route
of the territorial highway from Yuma
to Phoenix is also assured.
Such loyal boosters as Dr. Ketcher
side, A. B. Ming, Dr. H. Vance Cly
mer, Perry Spittler, E. F. Sanguinetti
and Paul Moretti and others, in this
matter, deserve especial mention.
All have given their time and money
to make the Phoenix to Los Angeles
race a complete success so far as Yu
ma is concerned and it is now assur
ed. The Examiner and the board of
supervisors deserve no credit as they
are simply servants of the people.
But the good work is not to end
here. For some reason unknown the
Imperial valley people and the Imper
ial valley supervisors are absolutely
negligent, it seems as regards this
race when it comes to preparing thei
roads, but so far as the Andrade cross
ing is concerned, A. F. Andrade has
assured A. B. Ming and Dr. Ketcher
side that before the day of the race he
will fix the Andrade crossing so that
the autos will have no trouble what
As to the rest of the road through
the Imperial valley, Yuma has no con
cern whatever. If the valley does not
want to fix their roads that is their
business and certainly none of ours.
What Yuma wants is to see the road
fixed from here to Phoenix so that
when the cars leave here in the aerlj,'
morning they are absolutely sure of
a fast run from here to Phoenix.
Thanks to our boosters this is now
assured, and not only does it mean
the road race, but it means countless
touring parties as well.
Hurrah for Yuma.
Alleged Bad Checks
.From Yuma Fxjiminer)
A man who signs his name to
checks as J. A. B. Stuart, and who
drew the aforesaid checks on the
American National bank, of El Pasc,
was arrested here this morning by
Marshal Henry Levy.
He was arrested on complaint of
Lee & Ming of the Plantation, who
had one or two of his checks and, this
arrest was made after Marshal Levy
had got suspicious of the man last
night and had wired the bank. After
receiving a wire to the effect that the
checks were not good, Marshal Levy
notified the Plantation and they or
dered the man arrested.
Still thinking there might possibly
be a mistake, they had one of the lo
cal banks wire the El Paso bank and
in due time the bank got the same
answer: "Checks not good."
Then at once, they ordered the man
arrested and he is now in the county
jail and will probably be given a pre
liminary hearing Monday.
Investigation by this paper up and
down the street to-day at noon show
ed that Stewart had not played the
Plantation alone, but that others also
had some of the checks, all of which
will probably come out at the trial on
Man Arrested for
"Only Two Dollars"
(From Monday's Daily Examiner)
Did you. ever notice how we look at
things differently, and that after all
what is wrong according- to American
standards ma? be all wrong according
to another standard.
Last night Marshal Levy walked in
to a local bar room and asked the bar
tender if he bad seen a Mexican with
a wooden leg. "No." replied the bar
tender, "he has not been in."
Four Mexicans were lined up at the
bar, and one of them leeaned ove
the bar and said in Spanish to tli
"What does he want him for. Al
he, done was take $2 off another Mex
ican. Surely they wouldn't arrest him
for that, would they."
Being assured that they undoubted
ly would, the Mexican rolled a ciga
rette, shrugged his shoulders and. roll
ed his eyes heavenward, as much as to
say it was inbelievable.
But all the same Officer Zavala got
the man during the night, and his guilt
was established today when Judge
Jones gave him ninety days.
